I have a small midi controller made by M-Audio. They have a great line of products. Check them out. Go to their website.

definitely the M-Audio AXIOM series of keyboards.... best combination of affordability/advanced features, IMO. I'm using the 61-key version right now, and i absolutely love it.




it's on SweetWater for $299 for the full 61-key version, you can get the 49-key one for about $50 less. And of course, check eBay as well.

I agree on the axiom again, I have the axiom 25 that I use for everything! Hook it up to reason or your favorite midi application and the possibilities are endless.

I would like the extra features that the 61 offers but the 25 can pretty much obtain the same results.

NOTE: These are MIDI keyboards and do not come with any pre-loaded sounds but with software you can obtain basically any sound ever created for a keyboard.
